With “Girl In Mine” Top 10 – Cover pays homage to early days of touring
With the release of their extended album, For You 2 arriving on September 22, Parmalee revealed the new album cover earlier today. Their current single “Girl In Mine,” is top 10 and climbing. The album has already yielded two #1 country singles including the double-platinum “Just The Way,” featuring Blanco Brown, and the platinum-certified “Take My Name,” which was Billboard’s Most Played Country Song of 2022. Pre-save/pre-add the album HERE.
The original album cover features the 1990 GMC-20 Vandura conversion van and a trailer they toured in for the first six years of their career. “We had a conversion van as a kid, so it always felt comfortable to me,” said leader singer Matt Thomas. I remember we had to get a new trailer because the door kept coming off the hinges in the middle of night, and we kept losing gear driving down the highway,” he laughed. “We’re excited to be releasing new music and continue our journey with For You 2.”
For You 2 offers five new songs including their current top 10 single “Girl In Mine.” The breezy track is “…the perfect song for a day out on the water or driving down a two-lane highway with the windows down,” said Taste of Country.
Another new track on For You 2 is the declarative “Boyfriend,” written by Matt along with fellow songwriters David Fanning, Ashley Gorley, Ben Johnson, Michael Hardy and Hunter Phelps. “The idea behind the song is something I feel like most guys have been through at least once in their life,” says Matt “You’re in love with a girl, but she’s with someone else who treats her bad. All you can think about is how if she was yours, you would treat her right and put a ring on her finger.”
Next week, Parmalee will take their hit-packed set on tour with Grammy Award winners Train, for a month-long set of shows. “We’re thrilled about the tour with Train, and we’ve been fans of them and their music for a long time,” said Matt. “They share a band mentality, just like we do, and I feel like we’re cut from the same cloth in a lot of ways. We’re excited to play our music for their fans.”
